High-pressure balloon dilatation for the treatment of primary obstructive megaureter: is it the first line of treatment in children and infants?

Swiss Med Wkly 2021 Jun 23;151:w20513. Epub 2021 Jun 23.

Paediatric Urology Unit, "Santobono- Pausilipon" Children's Hospital, Naples, Italy.

Aims Of The Study: To evaluate the efficacy of high-pressure balloon dilatation (HPBD) as treatment of primary obstructive megaureter (POM) in paediatric patients, we analysed the data of our institute from June 2018 to September 2019.

Methods: 14 patients, aged 5 months to 5 years, with POM were treated with HPBD. All patients had a distal ureter dilatation greater than 7 mm associated with obstructive features on a mercaptoacetyl triglycine-3 diuretic renogram scan, and a voiding cystourethrogram without vesicoureteral reflux.

Cyclophosphamide-induced inflammation of taste buds and cytoprotection by amifostine.

Chem Senses 2021 Jun 23. Epub 2021 Jun 23.

Department of Biology and Vermont Chemosensory Group, University of Vermont, 109 Carrigan Drive, Burlington, Vermont, United States of America.

Taste buds in the oral cavity have a complex immune system regulating normal functions and inflammatory reactions. Cyclophosphamide (CYP), a chemotherapy drug, has wide ranging disruptive effects on the taste system including loss of taste function, taste sensory cells, and capacity for taste cell renewal. In bladder epithelium, CYP also induces inflammation. Read More

Insights of fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 aberrations in pan-cancer and their roles in potential clinical treatment.

Aging (Albany NY) 2021 Jun 23;13. Epub 2021 Jun 23.

Department of Pathology, Xiangya Hospital, Central South University, Changsha 410008, Hunan, China.

Fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 (FGFR3) alters frequently across various cancer types and is a common therapeutic target in bladder urothelial carcinoma (BLCA) with FGFR3 variants. Although emerging evidence supports the role of FGFR3 in individual cancer types, no pan-cancer analysis is available. In this work, we used the open comprehensive datasets, covering a total of 10,953 patients with 10,967 samples across 32 TCGA cancer types, to identify the full alteration spectrum of FGFR3.

Robotic assisted reconstruction for complications following urologic oncologic procedures.

Transl Androl Urol 2021 May;10(5):2272-2279

Division of Urology, Department of Surgery, Cooper University Health Care, Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, Camden, NJ, USA.

Despite technical refinements in urologic oncologic surgery, complications are inevitable and often carry significant morbidity. Similar to oncologic surgery, reconstructive surgery has realized a paradigm shift from mainly open to an increasingly minimally invasive approach. Robotic assisted surgery has facilitated this transition as it mitigates some of the limitations of traditional laparoscopy. Read More

Role of lymph node dissection at the time of open or minimally invasive nephroureterectomy.

Transl Androl Urol 2021 May;10(5):2233-2245

Department of Urology and Translational Molecular Pathology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, USA.

Unlike urothelial carcinoma of the bladder, there is no guideline-based consensus on whether a lymph node dissection (LND) should be performed at the time of radical nephroureterectomy (RNU) for upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC). Variable lymphatic drainage based on primary tumor location, lack of prospective trials, and difficulties in developing a risk-adapted approach to LND for UTUC are all challenges to the development of an established approach. The UTUC literature consists of an evidence pool that has historically been limited to single-institution series with heterogenous inclusion criteria for LND and variable LND templates. Read More

Contemporary techniques and outcomes of robotic assisted radical cystectomy with intracorporeal urinary diversion.

Transl Androl Urol 2021 May;10(5):2216-2232

Department of Urology, NYU Winthrop Hospital, Garden City, NY, USA.

The open approach to radical cystectomy continues to be accompanied by significant morbidity despite enhanced recovery protocols (ERP). Robotic assisted radical cystectomy (RARC) with intracorporeal urinary diversion (ICUD) has become an increasingly popular technique for removal of aggressive bladder cancer and subsequent urinary diversion. Randomized clinical trials comparing the robotic and open techniques address the uncertainty surrounding oncological efficacy of the RARC and show that RARC is at least comparable to open radical cystectomy (ORC) in terms of oncologic adequacy and survival.

Robotic assisted radical cystectomy versus open radical cystectomy: a review of what we do and don't know.

Transl Androl Urol 2021 May;10(5):2209-2215

Department of Urology, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, NY, USA.

Radical cystectomy (RC) is the gold standard treatment for muscle-invasive and high-risk, noninvasive bladder cancer. Since 2003, robot-assisted radical cystectomy (RARC) has been gaining popularity. Metanalyses show that the primary advantage of RARC is less blood loss and the primary advantage of open radical cystectomy (ORC) is shorter operative times. Read More

Trigone as a diagnostic and therapeutic target for bladder-centric interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome.

Int Urogynecol J 2021 Jun 22. Epub 2021 Jun 22.

Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences, 125 Paterson Street, New Brunswick, NJ, 08901, USA.

The pathophysiology of interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) may be bladder-centric, with afferent nerve hyperexcitability and/or due to neural central sensitization. In bladder-centric disease, the trigone's unmyelinated nociceptive C-fibers are thought to be upregulated, suggesting this as a potential target for diagnostic modalities and for treatment with local anesthetics and chemodenervation. We propose that the transvaginal trigone treatment (T3) route of administration of such treatments should be considered in women with IC/BPS, as this approach is easier and less invasive than cystoscopy.
